What are Mini Mohawk Chullos?

These Mini Mohawk Chullos are absolutely adorable. They beautifully embellish our needle felted alpacas and any animals that wear them. They are knit by hand by our expert knitters in the highlands of Peru. The original chullos are Andean style hats that were created in Alpaca for its warming qualities that help to insulate its wearer from the harsh elements in the Andean Mountain region.

  • Hand knit by our experts
  • With holes for the alpaca’s ears
  • Ear flaps and tassels for extra warmth 
  • Fair Trade from Peru

What Is Alpaca Fiber?

Alpaca was once considered a gift from the gods and the most important relic of the history of the Incas. Alpacas are camelids since they share genetic material with camels. However, they are one of the four native species native species to South America.

There are two distinct breeds of these four-legged animals: the Huacaya alpaca and the Suri alpaca. The types of fiber derived from each of these types of alpacas are equally prized for different reasons. Fiber derived from alpacas can be either heavy or light depending on how it is spun, which means that it is ideal for a number of different kinds of products. Compared to sheep’s wool, alpaca fiber is considerably softer, and it is also more durable.

About Needle Felting? 

Needle felting is a dry felting method generally using wool with its barbs that felt quickly and easily. We use alpaca for a softer and more artistic effect. This art form is quick, easy, inexpensive, requires very few tools, and takes up very little space.

You can needle felt when you have just a few spare moments or for days at a time. We at Lanart offer both the Lemur Wild Life Alpaca Fiber Sculpture as a finished product and needle felting kits. Please call us at 877 alpacas or click here
